    Default 1973 Hondo question

    Hello,
    I'm new to jet boats
    I have a Hondo thats in a rough shape as you can see in the pics. I'm in the process of restoring it. can anyone tell me what type of hull this? It's titled as a 1973 17ft Hondo Jet boat HIN is HND82060**** the 8 could be a B. it has a jacuzzi pump 12wj i've been told but I'm not for sure? It came with a 454 with 049 heads and Nicson hardware/exhuast. Any info on this boat would be helpful. Thanks

    The last 4 of the HIN will indicate month and year of production. I have the old Hondo HIN decoder on the hard drive at home and can check it this evening.

    Definitely looks like Jacuzzi WJ pump to me. Should be a cool project.

    Default WJ

    That is definantly a dub j pump, somebody recently had a diverter for it for sale in parts spam, I think he is down to pretty cheap and it would be a good investment imo. Good luck with the project, you will get more and more excited about it as is comes together.
    Boating is nothing like cocaine, boating is much more addictive and results in bigger parties!
